    I still haven't received any e-mail specific to me. The February newsletter trumpeted the arrival of SkipMode to Roamios. To receive those newsletters might be an option you select from your online TiVo account... I'm not sure.

    I'll just keep on waiting. The commitments keep on slipping. It's no big deal and why create more work. Just feels like a broken promise.

    Got it in my Roamio Basic here in Hawaii this afternoon. No email to Margret or any other action on my part.

    Just got my 2nd email this morning saying "yay....here's what your Skipmode does" (first email was Feb 26). Still don't have it, and have forced connections every day.

    Either give me Skipmode, or quit sending me emails about how great it is.

    Got SM 'naturally' on my roamio basic yesterday 3/3. First clue was getting the email. Then after work I checked the basic and the message and feature were there. Haven't gotten SM on my plus yet. Still waiting on my second SM to drop 'naturally'.

    Got my first email today.

    When I get home from work I'll see if I finally got the update.

    I got Skip Mode on my Roamio Basic on 2/25 after an email to Margret. But the TiVo announcement email and notice on my Roamio just showed up yesterday 3/3/16. Wonder if the email and notice on the Roamio were from when I would have gotten it had I not emailed Margret?

    I love SM and only wish it could be on every program as you get pretty spoiled by it. I did notice on a recent Blacklist that the timing was a couple of seconds late on it. It cut off a tiny bit of the program. Thats the first I noticed that. No biggie but I've seen comments that they have to be careful with that as it would be considered altering the copy righted material.

    Long live TiVo!

    Skipmode working on my Roamio OTA and both attached mini's as of last night. Didn't realize it would apply to recordings made in the past. But it does and works just fine.

    After having used it to watch two episodes of The Big Bang Theory, I like it but it's only a minor improvement IMHO. For example, I have a 1-minute pre-pad for this recording. Which means that it usually starts off in commercial. If I press the green-d button, it doesn't skip to the beginning of the show. It skips to the segment after the first commercial break.

    That said it's still pretty cool. I like my tivo more with it than without.

    I got Skipmode Yesterday!!! I love it!!! How about Skip mode for Tivo Online!!! Because I watch a lot on my computer and Skip Mode would be nice. After all if it's working on the Tivo, shouldn't it also work on my PC? Works on my Tivo Mini's, so why not my PC!!! Take it to the next logical step.

    Interesting. The first time I hit D it takes me to the beginning of the recording and I have 1 minute pre-pad and 2 minute post pad.

    I pad nearly all of my recordings (including BBT) by one minute as well. Skipmode has always taken me to the beginning of the show, not to the segment after the first commercial. Not sure why your experience and mine are different.

    Same. Always jumps to start of show. Unless the recording actually starts late. I've used that on BBT.

    Still no skipmode on my Roamios or minis. Called tech support again. Now they say the rollout will be complete on 9 March.
